You knit me together in my mother's womb

A little late but here is the ultrasound picture from the day we found out the baby is a girl. For some reason I was so shocked. It's so fun to think of Olivia having a little sissy; and I have to say so nice to be able to use her toys and clothes again. Though, we would have been thrilled with anything. I have 5 weeks until my due date. Cannot believe we're being blessed with another precious child! Thankfully the Lord does not give us what we deserve because I definitely don't deserve this!

We went on our first road trip this past August to Northern Washington to visit dear friends and family where Steve grew up. We were gone for 3 weeks. It was so fun and such a great time for our family. Here are some of my favorite pictures from our trip.

We went to San Francisco for a day

Christine has a few inches on Auntie Petra:)

Planning to catch up, little by little.

Wow, I'm so behind on my journaling! I have this problem where if I get behind on something I avoid it until it turns into this huge monster. Well, it's time to catch up; or at least try to. So, I thought I'd just slowly go back and post pictures from our life since my last post in July. It's been a little strange lately, to say the least, because I've been on full bed rest for over 5 weeks and before that I was pretty much down for weeks (more on that soon.) It's been really hard physically and I haven't had it in me to try to catch up but I think I'm ready now- especially since our little girl is coming soon! More to come........
